Account maintenance

To regularly and automatically remove files which are no longer required from your disk space, maintenance rules may be defined. In this way you can specify when emails in your mailbox are to be removed to the trash or spam folders, and when saved www log files are to be deleted.

Scope of maintenance rules

There are four different fields of application for maintenance rules which give you complete control over maintenance work:

  • Domain-based rules: Own rules for each of your accounts may be established. You can specify settings for each account under "Manage Services" -> "Settings" -> "Account Maintenance".
  • Server-wide rules: (only applies to Managed Servers) For each of your managed servers you can define your own maintenance settings. These can only be overwritten by the domain-based rules. Server-wide maintenance rules can be defined for your managed server under "Account Management" -> "Account maintenance".
  • General rules: General rules apply to all accounts (shared and managed servers). These are overwritten by server-wide and domain-based rules. You can find the settings options under "Administration" -> "Maintenance" -> "Account maintenance".
  • Standard rules: If you have not specified rules for any of the above, standard rules come into effect. These are defined as:
    • Spam mails are deleted when they are older than 14 days
    • Mails in the trash bin are deleted when they are older than 14 days
    • www log files are not deleted
